in one sense that people may not be familiar with. he's the first american president since andrew jackson to win a re-election with a lower popular vote percentage than he won his first time. we don't do that in american politics. when we re-elect a president, we typically embrace that president even more strongly than the first time. the president's not in that political category, but he has won re-election and he has a mandate based on what he makes of it. many political scientists say the idea of a mandate is basically fiction. >> we learned something about the shape of the electorate. in 2008, the obama campaign decided they were going to build a coalition out of young voters, minority voters and college-educated women. they did that again. they did it in a slightly different ways and different regions of the country, but the president get a smaller share of the white vote, but the white vote shrunk, and he got a larger share -- well, the white vote actually stayed about the same, it's been shrinking since 1990, '92, but he got a larger vote of the minority vote, hispanics and african

jackson series, read: time. at the end of the summer, jack was a bright guy, but was not a big reader and a good-looking kid -- his mother must be very, very pretty. but by the end of the summer, he had read a dozen books. about nine of them he liked a lot in his reading skills have gone to remove. so he went from eight yourself or he didn't like to read two when he took his sats, which they take, he got 800 reading, which is the highest score you can get. so that's what can happen. it's unimportant whether they get 800 or harvard or vanderbilt , the support they get through high school and they have options when they get out. so yeah, mitch, where are you? , now, we're going to shoot the breeze and awesome question. what happened with that movie, et cetera, et cetera.

winfrey an, jesse jackson. you're talking earlier you're talk img this coalition, this new coalition in the democratic party. i think it says something not just to the republican party but perhaps the rest of america. i was talking earlier to mark who is the head of the urban league, he made the point of this coalition is becoming more mature. we talk about this coalition as young voters of women of minorities, african americans and hispanics. he makes a point, not only simply the republican party takes notice but perhaps the rest of america, corporate america could take some notice that america is changing. and perhaps not just the republican party but other organizations need to look at diversity in a different bay because yo --in different way. you see from this audience they won a tough race. they are relieved of this. there seems to be an expectation of this crowd that this is the direction america is going in. there's a level of confidence you see in this crowd in chicago that four years ago was just excitement that they won. the second time it happens people think okay we're o

, the first re-elected president since andrew jackson in 1832 to win a smaller share of the popular vote in the first re-election than he did initially. when you look at it as the margin between him and mitt romney, right now is at 2.4 percentage points which would tie george w. bush in 2004 as the narrowest margin of victory in the popular vote ever for successfully re-elected president. which says something about the durability of the divisions in our country at the time. >> how divided our country really is. i want to show our viewers a map, real quick. so, this is something that you coin back in 2009, if i'm correct. you call it the blue wall. tell us what you mean by that and what does it show and tell us? >> this is another big part of the story. there are now 18 states. the 18 states of the blue wall have voted democratic in every presidential election since 1992. six straight times. that is the most states democrats have won that often ever, since the formation of the modern party system in 1828. what that means unless republicans can break into this, can kind of breach the blue
a european style social democracy or more towards the traditional conservative populism of jackson or his ronald reagan, and third. when they manage to deal with the deadlocks to change the direction or brick at such a deadlock as this it comes into the presidential leadership. it doesn't come into any other means. that need to be a good harbinger for your policy and how they are bred to move forward on terms of what to promote. so, given all of that if you buy into any of it, it is to what extent do you see any way in the world that the next four years are going to be anything other than a continuation of the last four struggling through, kicking the can down the road not dealing with the fundamental problems of america? >> three very good questions. i would say that obama's first term has two parts before and after the 2010 election just as the clinton administration was also two parts. as a talk about the last years and clinton when the republicans took the house and forced them to keep welfare reform and cut the capitol gains tax. they never talk about the first two years where the jo
